    1. 2.5 stars. Review posted April 14, 2013I was excited to read Diamond Girl and when I first met Slate I honestly thought I would enjoy the book. Great body, hot tattoo, blue eyes, dark hair…yes! He is definitely my kind of hero from a physical POV. Not a bit of it! His physical attributes did not match up to his skills (or lack thereof) between the sheets. Up until the first sex scene I actually enjoyed the story, and I really liked the pole dancing. Though many little things killed the mood fo [...]

    2. ★★★★★! Diamond Girl, book 1 (stand alone). Suspenseful romance with intrigue & villains; personal growth & second chances; sizzling sex & an enigmatic, domineering alpha male hero.Diamond Girl is first book in the G-Man series. Though each book has its own hero/heroine I recommend they be read in order:Book 1: Diamond GirlBook 2: Love Plus OneBook 3: Night MovesAt first glance Diamond Girl sounded like a story about a bored Cougar housewife who embarks on a secret life and [...]

    5. 4.5 StarsI loved this BOOK!!! I'm going to say right offis was far from perfect. I had a couple of things that bugged me. But I'm rating this purely on my enjoyment of the story. And I enjoyed the hell out of it!I readd readd readd I just never wanted to put it down! Often, even with a good book, I'm checking the percentage, checking the time left until I finish reading. Just to see how late I have to stay up, or how much time I have left before I have to get up and do dishes or run errands or w [...]

    8. 2.5 Disappointing stars!!When this book was released I was so psyched to read it! Bad boy/Biker/alpha male!I was like Whoooooop whooooop!I was so sadly mistaken!Samantha is a 35year old woman who is married to an ASS hole of a husband for 19 years.Let me break it down:1- It’s pretty evident he doesn’t love her2- He is never home3- He treats her like crap4- They hardly ever have sexHer daughter and best friend urge her to find a hobby or something to keep her busy since her daughter Lindsay i [...]

    9. Super SexySlate starsI gazed up into the very intense blue eyes of one of the bikers. He was tall and muscular andGORGEOUSThis is Book 1 in the G-Man series. Samantha AKA Diamond Girl, Sunny or Sammie is a bored 35 yr old stay at home housewife. Her husband is a huge ASS and not even worth talking about. Seriously he is a slime ball. Well, one day Sammie decides she's tired of just staying at home doing laundryd decides to do something with her life. Yes you guessed it.??? Pole Dancing!!! She ge [...]

    10. I absolutely loved writing this book. I have always wanted to do a story where some under appreciated, still 'naive' at mid-life heroine wakes up and smells the coffee. That is exactly what happened to Samantha Dennison. It is refreshing (at least to me) that sometimes a heroine can still be sexy and vital after sending her only child off to college and finally, discover her own sexuality and individuality.Samantha was defined by those around her; those she took care of and strived to please: Ja [...]

    11. This book is about love, trust, and then about taking responsibility for ourselves and ultimately taking control of your life.What's it aboutA housewife, a mother, a cleaner, a cook, a maid, and no identity, no hobbies or interests. Well that's what Samantha, aka Sammie feels like she has spent the last 19 years being just this a mum and a wife to Jack the Ass. When her daughter leaves to go to college she try's to talk to her mum into taking up something, filling her life with something other t [...]

    12. 4.5 Diamond StarsAt 35 years old I was officially a 'frumpy housewife.'Samantha became pregnant at 16 to a guy who couldn't care less and never would. Her rich father fixed everything so it worked out for the best, or so he thought For 19 years Sammie was committed to a, "Mannequin husband."She needs to find her own identityShe needs sexual enlightenment In a BIG way!!!When her only child leaves home she is lonelier then ever but this is her light bulb moment. Hmmmm, lets see. What would you do [...]

    13. 1StarI rarely give a book 1 star. There were just so many things that added up to…1 star. Needless to say, I did not enjoy this one. I don’t even want to discuss it too much because I’m just…indifferent. I’ll just give you 3 reasons why I didn’t like it:1. The heroine is THE WORST! Everything she says is annoying. It is really hard for a heroine to annoy me. I think she's dumb. There is an actual lack of intelligence. (view spoiler)[She’s 35, never had an orgasm, doesn’t know the [...]

    14. OK, word of warning. This novel does contain extra-marital cheating – the husband is a real fuckwit tosser but it’s still cheating and I know a lot of you like to be forewarned.So, we have Sammie suddenly suffering from empty nest syndrome after her daughter goes off to college and deciding to spread her wings a little. She gets fit, gets back into shape and learns to pole-dance but her husband wouldn’t notice if she paraded around naked on her hands singing the national anthem so, feeling [...]

    16. 3.5 Pole Dancing Stars!Nothing like a little pole dancing to get a middle-aged, frumpy woman into shape. Sammie is 35 years old and in a loveless marriage that seems to be coming apart. Her husband is gone all the time on "business trips", her daughter just left for college so she needs to find something to fill the void that has left.

    17. This book was the first book for me that I seriously thought that I would continue to hate the hero. By the end, I did understand him more; but even with all of the reveals about him I still wouldn't call Slate one of my favorite's. I had a hard time forgiving some of the things he did in this story. I am rating this book a 3.5 stars for the main reason of my dislike of the hero for a big portion of the book. I do need to say that as far as the writing of Andrea Smith goes, I am definitely a new [...]

    18. 3.75 Stars”Come here, he gently ordered in a dark voice. “I want to touch your pussy. I want to see if it’s worthy of my cock.”Well alright!

    20. 4 Tarnished, Refitted, Polished Glowing Stars * * * * I heard a lot about Diamond Girl, the first of the G-Man series for Andrea Smith.There were positive reviews and additional books for the series. With the success of the following addition, Love Plus One, G-Man 2 and the recently released Night Moves G-Man 3, I decided to go to the source The Blurb:Thirty-five year old Samantha Dennison sends her only child off to college and finds herself generally feeling F-R-U-M-P-Y and lost. Her loveless [...]

    21. Diamond Girl is the story of Samantha Dennison an unhappily married mother of a college student. It's time for Sammie to claim something for herself, perhaps a job, community service or pole dancing? Yep, Sammie starts pole dancing taking a job as “Diamond Girl” without her abusive husband knowing of course.I liked the idea that Sammie was a thirty-five year old mom who went for something that was all hers! Sammie falls for Slate a biker who frequents the dance establishment and they form a [...]

A board housewife without the need of a second income, sh [...]

    24. This one was enjoyable enough I suppose. Not the greatest book I've ever read but I did finish it. The storyline was a bit predictable, I saw the big twist coming from a mile awayd I found the inner dialogue to be a bit annoying at times. Diamond Girl is Samantha. Samantha has been married to asshat Jack for 19 years. Sam got pregnant when she was 16 and her parents forced the marriage between her and Jack they have never really been in love with each other. With her daughter off at college now, [...]

    25. Four StarsI was visualized as a daughter; a wife; a mother; a best friend by those people in my life, but I had no clue as to how I viewed myself as a person. I had never bothered to carve out an identity for myself.When I first read the description of this book, I knew I had to have it. Not only does the story involve an older woman and a younger man, which if you know me, I love, but words like Ultimate Alpha Male & Bad-boy Biker, got me hook, line and sinker. Oh like you could resist, too [...]

    26. Holy Shit!! I loved, loved, loved this book!!SAMANTHA: Ticked every box, had the hot biker guy and then some, the likeable female character, the rat bastard I wanted to hit, action, steamy over the top pole dancing, sex scenes galore *sighs* I want/need more!! If not more of the same characters more biker, just morelol [image error]

    27. I love Andrea Smith's books and this one is no exception. different from her previous series but the book had me gripped.I did guess there was more than met the eye with Slate and I was proven right, which made me fist bump myselfSamantha is a married 35 year old, mother of 1 daughter in university, she fell pregnant when she was 16 by the high school stud, who reading between the lines basically took advantage of her whilst she was drunk and took her virginity at the same time. However, Samanth [...]

    29. 4.5 "MILF and Cougar" starsThis is me before the bookme half way:me 3/4 of the way:me at the endSo where does one start after reading a book like this? Well, first, I didnt expect to relate to Sammie. But man did I ever. Now don't get me wrong, i have a good marriage, my husband loves me and treats me good. I relate to her in the sense that her life is all about her child and her husband. She always a mom or wife, never just a women. I get that. I can see why she needed to do what she did. Slate [...]

    30. Reality? What's that? It seems to be missing here. To be honest - I was enticed into this book by some super magic keywords from a friend. She knows the kinds of books I love. So- I decide to pick it up and well- I was taken for a ride in the twist department- which I loved. However, I was also on the eyeballing ride as well.I wish this book hadn't had so many scenes skimmed over- losing valuable showing information. I wish this book didn't make some parts smoothed over like creamy chocolate, an [...]
